The winter transfer window closed on 31st August, but moves are still allowed in the case of players who are unemployed, or to replace a player with a long term injury. Changes of managers are also allowed to take place at any time during the season. We set out below the movements from the window closure up to the start of the window transfer window, which opens at the beginning of January.
Colour coding: Green - deals completed, but still not closed, or player on trial; Blue - deals closed now, but will take place at a later date; Red - deals closed but subsequently cancelled.
